their voices against harsh new anti-labor laws. >> right to work has got to go! >> he wants to turn us around make $10 an hour, what are we going to do for our families? >> jennifer: preach it, sir. despite the uproar outside the capitol, inside it, the republican-led legislature still passed right-to-work legislation today. that legislation would muzzle the union voice in michigan by taking away the requirement that everyone who's in a union shop should pay union dues. you might ask why is that a big deal. well if not everyone's required to pay you're going to have people who enjoy the advantages of a union better pay and better benefits environment but who don't contribute to the union's survival at all. this only works if we're all in it together. and more than that, this law is going to starve unions of their funding. from a political perspective in this democracy that is their power. there are actually two separate pieces of legislation. first applies to private sector employees like autoworkers. second one is publi
was levi strauss. now, 140 years later 450 million pairs of jeans are sold every year in the u.s. alone. now, you would think with that volume, the manufacturing process would be totally mechanized but actually a lot of it is still done by hand. a typical pair of jeans is made from 15 individual pieces, someone has to oversee cutting all of those pieces and sew them together and as you can see in this discovery channel documentary, the seams get ironed out flat then the zipper and the rivets are attached and finally, because who wants new-looking jeans they get distressed. workers put them on giant rubber legs that get blown up like balloons and then they give some rough treatment to them so they really look like they came out of a california mine. now, that discovery channel documentary might show satisfied workers happily doing their jobs but the truth is that kind of work is really hard. it requires a lot of tough manual labor. and for that, american companies have gone overseas and specifically to bangladesh. that c
was locked down. police say they arrested eight people inside, and even used a chemical spray to regain control control. outside, union supporters marched in solidarity the bill exempted unions representing police officers and firefighter. sound like shades of scott walker's wisconsin, anyone? an effort to divide the unions anyone? republicans in michigan, all of michigan control the house, the senate, the governor's office, the attorney general, the secretary of state, total control on the state level. less than two hours ago democratic state representative vicki barnett summed the outrage up on the house floor. >> what bothers me most today is that this bill was not discussed ahead of time. it was discharged on the floor then substituted on the floor. members of the unions came up to protest, and they were locked out of this building. this is their house, mr. mr. speaker. it should be allowed in the door. >> locked out. stuff pushed through on procedurally maneuvers. earlier, governor snyder made his case. >> this is an issue that i said was not on my agen
, they call us. we are the last line of defence. narr: it's the beginning of the day at miami dade police department. sergeant manny malgor leads one of the three highly-trained units that make up the special response team. man sync: sarge. man: good late afternoon. why am i here early, sir, and you're not? narr: manny's boss, lieutenant calvin james, is srt's overall commander. mannie sync: how are you doing? everything good? good job last night, by the way. calvin: thanks, you too. you too. excellent. narr: with violent crime ever present, the city is becoming increasingly dependent on its elite police unit. calvin sync: the reason why miami dade has chosen to use srt to execute most, if not all narcotic search warrant, is because of the propensity for violence that comes with the field. usually when you deal with, with dopers, they believe in violence. they survive through violence. they're all armed. so instead of sending, or taking the risk of sending a regular detective or police officer to these places to execute these warrants, the leaders of the department understand that it will
people in the u.s. and caused billions of dollars of damage. unless you live in one of the affected areas you probably think things are back to norm. but that's because the media is barely cleaning up the cleanup efforts. in new york city, they're living in third world conditions, raw sewage continues to flow into water ways. thousands still have no power and direct subway service is not expected to return into the middle of next year. >> we were up to five feet of water. it was not water but it was all cesspool so it was sewage water. >> how much can a body tank. >> blankets, two socks three sweaters and gloves. >> they have got garbage they're cleaning in other areas and putting it on the beach here, yet we have still have garbage here. >> it's the way life is. >> jennifer: thousands of volunteers have flocked to the rockaways to help with the cleanup efforts tonight coming from new york, dr. sabaya, welcome to the war room. >> i'm having difficulty hearing you. >> jennifer: i can hear you, just a little bit faint. >> a little bit faint. hopefully they can turn up your microphone becaus
over half of all semi-automatic rifles sold every year including the one that was used in the newtown massacre. the california teacher a pension fund has about $751 million invested in the company that is responsible for that, cerberus. late yesterday a spokesman for the fund told the sacramento beat that the pension fund was considering pulling its investment out of cerberus, saying "events that occurred in connecticut are a wakeup call to re-examine our investments." the california teacher's pension fund has a lot of money for those investments. $155 billion overall to be exact. remember $751 million of that is with cerberus. so facing that kind of clout cerberus announced at 1:00 a.m. this morning that it would sell freedom group and it would return the proceeds to investors. the company said -- cerberus said "it is apparent that the sandy hook tragedy was a watershed event that has raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level. as a firm, we are investors not statesmen or policy
and said i have got your back. is this a different president than we have been used to seeing? >> we heard the president crystal clear thursday following the election about how important he thought it was for everybody to pay their fair share so we can get this country back to work and get the economy sped up. and i think he was planning to come to michigan before governor snyder switched up on us. i think this was an assault on any part of workers to have a place, through an organization to speak with a united voice. >> it seems to me in listening to what karl levin was saying, and this delegation asked him to not sign it, hear more about it that snyder is beginning to see the gravity of this situation. whatever comes to me i'm going to votto or pass or sign. it is not that kind of legislation. this has far-ranging appeal. do you see a different side of snyder coming out of this meeting? >> i don't know. i am curious about the side of snyder this flipped next week when he said after promising that he would never sign this legislation, he went public and said he
, that this was going to happen, and it was like banging my head against the wall. i remember i used to go down to the flint city council meetings and i would -- i would just have one or two friends with me trying to tell them look general motors has a master plan, and that plan is to move as much production out of here and take it to mexico and other countries, and you guys have got to get it with here, because this is a one-industry town and if this goes we all go. and instead i was attacked by a number of people. why did you make that film and make flint look bad? well, i'm just showing what general motors has done to flint. and at that time, remember in 1989, we had only lost 30,000 jobs, only lost -- we still had 50,000 jobs. and you came in and very heroically tried to put your finger in a number of the dikes that were springing all of this water, but it was a flood -- >> jennifer: it was a flood, but the problem is right, that we got now -- we now potentially have an administration in washington that cares about keeping manufacturing jobs in the united states. b
's legislation has been used across the country to weaken gun laws. since 2009, 99-nra-backed alec laws have passed in 36 states. all of those states are states where alec-backed gun legislation has passed. and as a result, gun safety laws across the country have gotten incredibly watered down. in arizona you need a permit to cut hair but not to carry a concealed. in mississippi concealed weapons permits last longer than driver's licenses. iowa it's easier to sell a gun than lemonade. in arkansas it takes less time to buy a gun than to qualify for food stamps. not only do we have weaker gun laws than other countries, we have significantly more guns than any other place on the planet. look at this chart. those little yellow dots are the number of runs that are in all of those countries, all of those advanced industrialized nations, and there are 270 million privately owned firearms in the united states, far more than any other country the world. that's an average of roughly nine guns for every 10 americans. almost as many guns as there are people. and sadly the sandy hook ven
is still raging in the region and the captain, fearful for our safety, asks us to disembark here. the ship will take a month to reach kisangani. a few weeks later another ship won't be so lucky. overloaded it sinks and 140 of its passengers drown in the river congo. [♪ theme music ♪] >>> i'm michael shure. tonight in "the war room," union busting, arrests, the coach brothers the president it seems michigan has a little something for everyone these days. [♪ theme music ♪] >>> welcome inside "the war room," i'm michael shure sitting in for jennifer granholm. tonight the fight rages on in michigan. the new front line for the battle for worker's rights in this country. the uaw is founded there, but republican lawmakers are now threatening to cripple it there. this is pure and simple union busting. these right to work laws have already had serious impacts across the country. wages for all workers, unionized and otherwise have decreased an average of $1,500 a year and workers are less likely to get health insurance or pensions. during the campaign any president
. we should pay to train these teachers. the people who scream us to about fast and furious and said gun proliferation and mexico was dangerous are still telling us gun proliferation in america makes us safer. welcome to the u.s.a. where of some you will find it's easier to buy a weapon designed to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time than it is to marry who you love or vote where you want or send your kids to kindergarten. we now live in a society where the aurora, colorado, shooter could buy 6,000 rounds of ammo online and tommy chung went to jail for selling bombs. it is painfully obvious... we need change in this country! and the good news, the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners agree. in fact, a new ppp poll finds that the majority of americans and the majority of gun owners support banning assault weapons and closing the gun show loophole. but the nra opposes both of those measures and in the past, the nra has successfully fought gun control legislation by threatening to attack an
. he claimed u.s. sovereignty so the tea party is now in from its right flank. it's not just about the united nations. 24 hours an speaker john boehner put a budget offer on the table the tea party is threatening to throw him over board. what is his great plan? raising revenues--aah. the details are pretty vague, but we know his plan would raise $800 billion in revenue closing some unnamed loopholes while sparing the top earners from any more taxes. tea partyers object to raising any revenue at all. on the other side the president is not pleased with boehner's plan because he said there would be no deal without higher tax rates for the wealthy. >> obama: if we're going to raise revenues that are sufficient to balance with the very tough cuts that we've already made, and the further reforms and entitlements that i'm prepared to make, then we're going to have to say the rates on the top 2% go up, and we're not able to get a deal without it. >> jennifer: and jay carney piled on the g.o.p. plan. >> we don't know who pays. we don't know what we're talking about in terms of actual legisl
was the man he almost killed. simply put, relying on armed citizens to keep us safe it just doesn't work. according to mother jones there have been 62 mass shootingings in the last decade. not one has been stopped by a good guy returning fire. in cases where civils did try to fight back, two were gravely injured or killed. mutually assured destruction just doesn't work that well with suicidal maniacs, so we need to find another way to keep our six-year-olds safe in their classrooms. this is about good and bad guys. and president the said he was appointing joe biden to assessable a task force. >> hopefully there will be some new ideas. their task is going to be to, you know, sift through every good idea that is out there, and even take a look at some bad ideas before disposing of them. >> jennifer: hopefully in the end disposing of them. john boehner was called to bring an end to high-ammunition magazines to a vote by saturday. great idea. and there are more good ideas coming from the state level. in california there is a bill tightening california's ammunitions restric
up than do it the other way because it gives us greater chance to reform the tax code and broaden the base in the future. >> jennifer: so he's not giving in. he's just bargaining now to see what he can get later. and then we've got the fourth stage which is depression. which is often accompanied according to elizabeth kubler ross by wistful thoughts of better times. newt gingrich is planted firmly in this stage. he said he longs for the 1990s when republicans led by him of course, were in his estimate aches, republicans were more able, more powerful, able to get president clinton to bend to their will or at least so he said on piers morgan last night when he said "we earned president clinton's respect by closing the government twice and being very rough and tumble. we showed we actually were willing to take the heat." mr. wistful himself. newt gingrich. then moving on to the fifth stage of grief. we finally reach the last one which is acceptance. the acknowledgement that i can't fight it. i might as
their bo bow that things are changing. >> jennifer: for those of us who have not been inside the orientation, how did that go? what do they do to orient new members of congress? >> they get all the new freshman members of congress, republican and democrat, and they put us in a lot of sort of halls, a lot of meetings with--you go overrules regulation ethics, and committee assignments, that sort of thing what to expect, common mistakes by freshman, loose of this back-office stuff. i wish it was more policy driven but you have to learn the rules first. >> jennifer: you have to know where the bathrooms are before you get start. >> exactly. >> jennifer: the house has not made committee assignments yet have you gotten assignment yet probably. what committee do you hope to be on? >> i hope to be on financial services. the reason for that, my background is a cpa. also what is going to be done in thecongress will have to do with services. my district is no different. we're really hit very hard by the housing crisis, and i want to be in a position to help out my district. >> jennifer:
